Five stars for some of the best RRE I've ever come across on the Archive. This matrix sounds incredible and the band is on fire. The Buddha->Cumbanchero->St. Anne's and the Magic Foot->Luxury Liner are the best I've ever heard. I would recommend that you download this now and play it at a tremendous volume so the neighbors can enjoy.

Reviewer: biomechman1 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 2, 2008
Subject: Very Impressed
I don't usually write reviews, but I felt the need to here. The recording is excellent. Like many, I typically prefer soundboard because I have seen enough shows that I can do without the drunken verbage of the audience (typically me). However, this is a great audience and comes off quit well here. The performance was also excellent. I think the folks at Bishop's Cafe experienced the very best of RRE & a spectacular setlist. The oncore gave me chills, and even shut up the loud-talker next to the mics. Thanks RRE for the great show and allowing it to be available in this manner, and thanks to the taper (i'd use your name if I knew it)! Peace

I'm pretty new to these guys. In fact, a friend just told me to check them out last night. BUT. They are fucking transcending. Period. This music is as powerful as music can get. Honestly. I can't wait to see them at the Suwannee Springfest in a few weeks! Plus. This is a tremendous Audience Recording. Thanks to the taper.

Reviewer: qweniden - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - December 19, 2005
Subject: One of the best RRE shows
This is one of the best RRE shows of the year which means one of the best they've ever done. Exellent recording too.

An awesome recording of a great RRE show, and THANK YOU, Stan, for making this streaming.

If you like these guys, hell even if you don't, get this show. Take it from an old Deadhead, this is a great audience recording, and as you know, a good aud is oftentimes better than a good sbd.
Reviewer: Kyrion - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 10, 2005
Subject: Great tape, great show
One of the best RRE auds out there; definitely worth checking out!
Reviewer: billydog711 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 9, 2005
Subject: Excellent!
I've probably listened to all of the RRE shows on LMA, and am not really much a fan of non-sbd recordings, but this one is excellent!
Crisp, clean and clear recording, and the audience actually adds a nice element without overpowering.
Kudo's to the taper! RRE is the best.
